Copy typing

We type handwritten and typed documents into correspondence, statements, workshop notes, manuscripts, reports and submissions, in Word 2016 or other formats. We regularly type whole publications. Our clients are government departments, non-government organisations, businesses, companies and authors.

What we will do for you

  • First we provide you with a free consultation to clarify what you need and the timeline, and a quote for typing your document/publication.
  • If we do not have a typist that lives near you, we will ask you to either scan and email the document to us, or post it to us. If we have a typist who lives near you, we can arrange for pickup/delivery.
  • If your original document is handwritten, or a hardcopy typed document with handwritten corrections, we may need to consult with you to clarify words, letters or shortforms.
  • If you have a PDF (online) copy of the document but need it typed into a Word document, we will first try PDF/Word conversion to see if this produces a relatively accurate Word document. Converting a PDF document to Word sometimes results in errors. Depending on how well the PDF document converts to Word, we will recommend either copy typing the document 'from scratch', or proofreading the converted document against the PDF to correct errors.
  • When typing the documents, we will correct minor spelling or other errors as we type. If we discover any major errors during typing, we will consult with you about how to proceed.
  • If the document you need typed is only one to two pages, we may suggest that we scribe your document as you speak, via telephone, if we think that will be a more cost-effective method.
Note: Our definition of 'Copy typing' is copy typing text that may have headings, dot points and tables but has only minimal formatting. We type the documents in Word although upon request we will save the document in PDF format. Copy typing is charged at a lower rate than formatting or editing. Copy typing does not include creating Table of Contents, Styles or footnotes; those tasks are charged at the Advanced Word or editing rate.
